Description
"Science is rooted in conversations", wrote Werner Heisenberg, one of the twentieth century's great physicists. In Quantum Dialogue, Mara Beller shows that science is rooted not just in conversation but in disagreement, arguing that this culture fuels scientific creativity. Beller uses original correspondence, notebooks, and drafts of talks and published papers to show how world-famous scientists promoted their views, by dismissing their opponents as "unreasonable" and championing their own not always coherent position as "inevitable".

Quantum Dialogue, winner of the 1999 Morris D. Forkosch Prize of the Journal of the History of Ideas, will fascinate everyone interested in how "scientific revolutions" are constructed and "scientific consensus" achieved.
